Victorian Variety Bash stops in to enjoy Cunnamulla hospitality
MORE than 85 outlandish cars roared into Cunnamulla on Monday, showing locals the Victorian Variety Bash had well and truly hit town.
It had taken them five days to get this far and it was no mean feat – they’d driven 716km from Tibooburra and been on the road since the early morning
Three hundred people converged on the Cunnamulla Fella for dinner after the long drive and thoroughly enjoyed the local hospitality, said Variety Bash spokeswoman Alicia Pentreath.
“The cars are travelling from Geelong to Townsville and Cunnamulla was one of the stops for the entrants,” she said.
“They got to enjoy a nice, hot meal and a welldeserved night’s rest and really appreciated the community helping out with catering.”
Cunnamulla was a much-loved, albeit brief, stopover for many of the Victorian drivers, Ms Pentreath said.
“Our bashers loved Cunnamulla. They always enjoy stopping into various places along the way each year, and a lot of them had never been there before.
“By all reports, they had an amazing time.”
Decked out in their wild costumes, the fleet rolled out early on Tuesday to reach Emerald by the end of the day.
The Victorian iteration of the bash has already been a long haul this year, having started in Geelong.
They will finish in Townsville on Saturday.
